Bone, joint or muscle pain? Did you know that you can speak to a First Contact Physio at the surgery?

The First Contact Physio (FCP) will:

  • Assess you and diagnose what’s happening
  • Give expert advice on how to best manage your condition
  • Recommend exercises and other approaches to deal with the issue
  • Refer you on to specialist services if necessary

A national evaluation on this service showed:

  • Fast access to specialist expertise
  • Fewer onward referrals to see a hospital consultant
  • On average, 95% of patients do not require a GP follow-up
